How to Increase Your Stamina

Stamina is a term that is sometimes used to refer to endurance, and is the capacity of your body to sustain physical effort over an extended period of time. Stamina includes muscle and all of your organs. To increase stamina, you should focus on exercises that improve your stamina, and make use of stairs and other forms of physical activity to burn calories. You should also aim to increase your stamina by doing meditation and yoga on a regular basis.

Star jumps are among the best exercises for increasing stamina. They strengthen your core, which is a vital part of all physical activities. Start by kneeling on the floor and then extend your arms out in front of you. Make sure that your palms are resting on the floor. Hold this position for a few seconds, then return to your starting position. Repeat this sequence several times until you have reached the desired strength level.

Another great way to build your stamina is to incorporate more intense exercise into your regular running routine. If you normally run for 30 minutes three times a week, you can choose a day to run for 40 minutes. If you start slowly, increasing the duration of your runs will be easier as your stamina improves. By incorporating longer runs into your weekly workout routine, you can increase your stamina by as much as 10 percent each week.
